1.1.2. Arria® 10 GT Device Transceiver Layout

The Arria® 10 GT device has 72 transceiver channels and four PCI Express* Hard IP blocks. A total of 6 GT transceiver channels that can support data rates up to 25.8 Gbps.

In the GT device, transceiver banks GXBL1E, GXBL1G, and GXBL1H each contain two GT transceiver channels. Transceiver banks GXBL1E and GXBL1H channels 3 and 4 can be used as GT or GX transceiver channel. Transceiver bank GXBL1G channels 0 and 1 can be used as GT or GX transceiver channels. When none of the GT capable transceiver channels are used as GT transceiver channels, the entire transceiver channels in the bank can be reconfigured as GX transceiver channels. However, when any of the GT capable transceiver channels in transceiver banks GXBL1E, GXBL1G, and GXBL1H is enabled as a GT transceiver channel, the remaining channels in the transceiver bank cannot be used with the exception of the other GT capable channel in the transceiver bank.

If you're using GT transceivers in bank GXBL1E, then the adjacent PCIe* Hard IP block cannot be used.
